Whenever log_store() sees a LOG_PREFIX flag it marks the previous
log entry (if there is one) with LOG_NEWLINE, which (also) produces
the desired effect.

There's therefore no need to record LOG_PREFIX in log records.

If no log entries contain LOG_PREFIX, devkmsg_read() and
msg_print_text() don't need to check for it.
